Fantastic tour, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable on the history of Venice, so was able to provide many insights that we would not have gained if we did not do this tour. Would highly recommend.

The information provided was detailed and helpful, providing a greater understanding of these two places in the history of Venezia. The ticket to get into the Doge's Palace was useful to get into other museums in the San Marco area. You didn't need to do the other museums on the same day as the ticket was good for a longer period of time, but only one entry into each place. You can't go back to the same place twice on a single ticket.

This is a MUST tour when in Venice. It was easy to find the tour guide even in the busy St. Mark's Square. The tour guide was simply amazing and had LOTS of interesting information to make the sites come alive. I felt that I was back in Venice in the 1600s visiting the Doge. The headsets worked perfectly and were very comfortable to wear. I walk slower as I use a cane and am often left behind in tours. But with the headset, I could hear everything and didn't feel that I missed out on anything. I loved the St. Mark's Basilica and the tour guides ability to explain what we were seeing through a Christian lens. Very respectful. DO NOT go through these sites without this tour to help you understand the magnificence of what you are seeing.You even get a bonus tour of the museum in the square. Which was truly amazing. Well worth every single penny!!!

This was an amazing tour from start to finish. It was easy to find the tour group - even in the busy St. Mark's square. The headsets worked throughout - which was helpful for me as I walk slower with a cane and often cannot keep up with the rest of the tour group. However, I could still hear everything that was being said so didn't miss out on anything. Plus, the tour guide was simply amazing. She had all sorts of information that really made the tour come alive - I felt I was back in the 1600s as we travelled through the Doge's Palace. The tour of the Basilica was simply breathtaking. So nice to hear the Christian perspective on how and why the church was laid out as it is. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. DO NOT go through these sites without a tour guide. You simply miss out on too much and it won't do justice to what you see.

I really enjoyed this tour and was in absolute amazement of the Doge Palace and the Basilica! The tour guide was very informative and would only recommend she carry some sort of flag as she was hard to see and keep up with because of the enormous amounts of people all around.

There was evidence of high tide in the square but boots were not necessary. We had a fantastic guide and although there is a bit of a line in skip the line I believe it is the best way to go. Going on a guided tour certainly gives more meaning and perspective to what you are seeing. I can't help but feeling so much more enlightened after having this experience.
